Last month, I wrote an article titled “Looping as a Practice Tool”. I didn’t intend to write a second article on looping but after getting a few questions from students and other readers, it felt like a good idea to cover more about the topic.
First off…what is looping? “Looping is the recording and playback of looped audio samples in real-time.” (Thank you, Wikipedia.) This can be done through hardware (dedicated looping units or certain delay pedals) or software. As we saw last month, this ability can be exploited for a better practice experience.
So what options do I have available to get into looping?
